Develop Skill-Building In Adults to Lessen 'Toxic Stress' In Kids

New Video Explains How Adults Can Lessen ‘Toxic Stress’ In Kids
WBUR, Sascha Garrey, 06/25/2013


Almost one in four American children are living in poverty, according to a new report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The long-term consequences of childhood poverty are bleak to say the least, but the report has a clear-cut policy recommendation to address this issue: invest in interventions that focus on early childhood development. This policy direction strikes a chord with President Obama, whose most recent State of the Union address focused in part on early childhood education and its importance in setting the stage for a successful adult life. And it fits perfectly with a spiffy new five-minute video, narrated by Dr. Jack P. Shonkoff, director of the Harvard Center on the Developing Child.  http://youtu.be/urU-a_FsS5Y  Video link

In Brief: The Science of Early Childhood Development – Excellent 4 mins video that provides key information about childhood brain development. The importance of positive cognitive development on children’s brains and the interactions with the adults in their lives cannot be over emphasized.  Prolonged stress in early childhood has negative long-term effects.
